Re: Hello Again! / I'm Back!

Absolutely ^_^ now I work at a Japanese company that localizes and publishes Japanese games to the West and vice versa. I'd love to be able to make a game by myself or as part of a small team. Programming is the biggest obstacle for me. I'v'e tried to teach myself but what I read never gives me a pr...

Re: Hello Again! / I'm Back!

Yeah exactly :D I'm still playing music, but not for a living. Are you able to program for video games?

Re: movies, interview translations

00:26 I can't hear "it's sort of", or discern any dialogue at all, really... 01:25 "I'm still terrified of losing (arrow? Erol?) so I've gotta not look in his direction (indicernable) haha" 03:53 So the only sort of stripping I'm interested in, is removing all of it! I know that isn't very useful :(...

Re: Learning kanjis the AJBryant way

I second that. Richvh is totally on the mark here. It must be almost a decade ago that he helped me in my Japanese training on our first chat server. That happy time has slipped through my fingers... Anyway, yes. Don't be idle in picking up a Japanese manga that takes your interest. I say manga beca...

Re: Reading the attack on titan manga...

Hi 学生さん perhaps the most confusing thing of all, the character "一" was actually written vertically instead of horizontally, but had no furigana so I don't know what to make of it. When you were reading the manga, all the text is vertical, right? This line is a 長音記号(elongted vowel) symbol like you ge...

Re: How to use と感じる

I just want to make sure that I got it.... 1. I feel sad (personal feeling), I would use 悲しく感します。 2.I feel happy (external), I would use 美人を見ると、嬉しいと感します。 Actually in the first case rather than using 感じる you'd be better off with 思う, which doesn't just mean 'to think' but also 'to feel.' Notice how b...

Re: translating "same as"

Just to confirm in case anything was unclear, えいごではクリニングといって、せんたくと同じようになりますが、日本語では、ちがいます、 "cleaning " ⇒そうじは、へやをきれいにすることです In English you say "cleaning" which would be the same as (washing clothes/洗濯) but in Japanese, it's different. "cleaning" > 掃除 means tidying a room. クリニング should be クリーニング As ric...

Re: Replacing i with ki?

In Classical Japanese (sometimes used today as in the examples you give for an archaic feel) い adjectives end in し やすい would be やすし 美しい would be 美し However, this form is called 終止形, the 'ending form.' When the adjective is modifying the following word, the adjective ends in き 壊れやすいもの >> 壊れやすきもの 美しい女...

Re: Ask for ordinal number

Hi Kamwah, "Is Obama the (??th) president of the United States?" If you want make it a question without suggesting a number, you have no choice but to ask something like "What number president is Obama?" which sounds a bit awkward, but in truth there aren't convenient ways to phrase this as there ar...

Re: "What is your Major"

Maybe :) I remember first hearing 専攻 and up until that time I had just used the word 専門. But actually 専門 suggests a certain degree of expertise already in the basket.

Re: "What is your Major"

They are basically interchangeable but usage tends to follow the patterns below. 専門 means 'speciality' so if you ask 「専門は何ですか」 the person replying ought to name a subject of which they have already acquired a significant degree of knowledge. A 専門家 is a professional in their given field. 専攻 is used m...
